Dave Webb admitted his side were taught a “footballing lesson” against League One Swindon Town although the Swindon Supermarine boss remained upbeat despite the heavy defeat.
Swindon Town strolled to a 6-0 win at the Webbswood Stadium on Saturday and although Webb was disappointed with Supermarine’s performance, he said his side will learn a lot from the loss.
Webb also revealed that goalkeeper Matt Bulman will be the club’s new captain following the departure of last season’s skipper Chris Taylor.
Ross Adams has also left Supermarine in the summer but Webb is now looking forward to building a youthful looking squad ahead of the new season.

Although Supermarine came off a good second best after 90 minutes, it was the Webbswood outfit who almost broke the deadlock when Connor Thompson forced a superb save from Town’s Lawrence Vigouroux on 10 minutes.
The post also came to Town’s rescue early on when Thompson’s header eluded Vigouroux but instead found the woodwork.
Town then got the opener when Jermaine Hylton scored on 17 minutes.
Six minutes later Hylton added his second goal from the penalty spot.
Town rang the changes at half-time, changing their entire starting XI and they added an early third goal courtesy of Brad Barry, who beat Matt Bulman from the edge of the box.
Brandon Ormonde-Ottewill then tapped home a rebound from Ellis Iandolo’s shot on 69 minutes before Jonathan Obika scored 10 minutes from time.
Ellis Iandolo then wrapped up the scoring with the last touch of the game to make it 6-0.
